“There are a lot of research going on around the world, so it is possible that at some time in the near future, we will have what we may describe as a definitive cure for COVID-19.

“Indeed we are setting up our own clinical trials in Lagos in collaboration with other institutions and the NCDC and hopefully by this time next week, we should have started some clinical trials on our patients and on our staff in Lagos State,” he said.

As at Monday night, there were 120 confirmed cases reported in Lagos state.

It remains the highest in Nigeria, with the FCT second with 48.

Of the total of 238 cases in the country, 35 patients have been discharged, while five are dead.
